I have a confession…I crave vintage things…the amazing quality of the pieces, the colors the textures the heart that was put into the delicate features…things you don’t see a lot of anymore.
With that being said I love to find pieces that need a little TLC and make something wonderful out of it. I remember playing with my grandmothers old jewelry as a kid and the pieces falling apart and the for the most part I kept every little piece that I still to this day have if I haven’t made something out of it already. My mother in law had her moms “costume” jewelry that had been sitting around for a while and it was headed to a donation box near you…but I couldn’t do it, no matter what kind of hoarder I must have looked like I ask it I could have it all…some broken, some earrings with no matches, some brooches with no pin…sigh! I felt shameful asking at the time, but since then things like that have become my biggest passion…you just don’t know where those pieces have been and if only they could talk and tell you what it was like to walk into the theater and sit next to Johnny , or the wedding that it went to, or the shoes they were pinned too…there is nothing like a little history, history reshaped!
If you are interested in taking your heirlooms and making something you can wear today rather than it sitting in that bin(come on you know what bin I am talking about) send me and email to firstname.lastname@example.org or visit my etsy site and check out the listings for custom 1,2,3 and up statement jewelry!
